Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We are a family run business and are committed to operating a Responsible Travel Policy. We aim to provide a quality and positive experience for our customers while contributing to and enhancing the local economy and respecting the environment.

Whilst walking you are taking part in a healthy activity and visiting the area while reducing road congestion. The local authority encourages people to visit the area on foot using public transport in line with their desire to encourage sustainable tourism.

The Responsible Travel Code of Conduct which you receive with your information pack contains suggestions on how to be an ethical traveler by reducing water usage, recycling and properly disposing of litter, and reducing damage to the environment.

The majority of the accommodations we use are locally owned and operated and use local produce for breakfast, thus reducing "food miles" and sustaining the local economy. Wherever possible we use accommodations that are registered with the Green Tourism Business Scheme.

When transferring your luggage to your next accommodation we consolidate with others along the Leeds & Liverpool Canal wherever possible to reduce energy consumption.

During the booking process for your vacation we reduce paper usage by corresponding by email wherever possible and only printing correspondence which is legally binding. We recycle our ink cartridges and envelopes, and use low energy light bulbs. Paper which cannot be recycled is shredded and composted.

Whilst on this vacation you will be walking at your own pace in your own group. We restrict group sizes on our self-guided walking vacations to a maximum of 12 to reduce impact on the community and the environment.

The locally owned accommodations give our guests a warm welcome and recommend local pubs, cafes and restaurants along the Leeds & Liverpool Canal Canal for lunches and dinners. All these issues make a great difference to the economic welfare of the local community by providing employment and sustaining the local economy.

By taking this vacation on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal you are contributing to the community by providing income for accommodation providers, pub landlords, restaurant and cafe owners, luggage transfer drivers, and local farmers. There are a large number of National Trust Properties in the area. Whilst walking on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal we encourage guests to visit Albert Dock in Liverpool a great example for how a community can recover from industrial change. The entrance fees are used to restore and conserve our heritage, and provide employment for local people.

During this walk a highlight for our team is a visit to the great Yorkshire pub of The Woolly Sheep in Skipton.
